Air Pollution and Electrosmog

Two thirds of studies examined report ecological effects of electromagnetic radiation, and researchers state that, “current evidence indicates that chronic exposure to electromagnetic radiation, at levels that are found in the environment, may particularly affect the immune, nervous, cardiovascular and reproductive systems”.

Naked Women

Gandhi hadn’t had a sexual relationship with a woman for 40 years. His conscious purpose in inviting naked women to share his bed was – to avoid having sex with them. While it was commonly discussed as damaging his reputation when he was alive, Gandhi’s sexual behaviour was ignored for a long time after his death. The preservation of his vital fluid did not keep India intact, and it was the power-brokers of the Congress Party who negotiated the terms of India’s freedom.

Sexual Fantasies

Men were more likely than women to focus on a specific person in their fantasies. They imagined more taboo topics—Dr. Lehmiller says this may be because they have a more heightened need for excitement than women. And they are more likely than women to fantasize about gender-bending scenarios: cross-dressing, becoming the other sex, having a transgender partner. Women imagined more same-sex scenarios. They cared more about the setting than men did, creating elaborate locations for their fantasies. And they had more emotional content.

Der Pädiater, der töten liess

Hans Asperger (1906–1980), österreichischer Kinderarzt und Heilpädagoge, hat Autismus als Erster erkannt und beschrieben. Während der Jahre des nationalsozialistischen Regimes hatte er hohe Ämter inne und arbeitete auch als Gutachter, was die Frage aufwirft, ob und wie er mit dem NS-Regime kooperiert hatte. Das blieb zeit seines Lebens unklar, schon weil er sich selber nie dazu äusserte, zumindest nicht öffentlich.

Der Körpergeruch

Im realen Leben spielen sowieso noch andere Faktoren bei der Partnerwahl eine Rolle. Die Männer in der Berner Studie hatten keinerlei Informationen von den Probandinnen ausser deren Geruch. Sie wussten nichts über die Persönlichkeit der Frauen oder darüber, wie sie aussehen, wie ihre Stimmen klingen, wofür sie sich interessieren und was ihnen im Leben wichtig ist. Dass Körpergerüche nicht nur bei der Partnerwahl, sondern allgemein im Zwischenmenschlichen entscheidend sind.

The world of smells

The smells pouring out from various parts of the body are unique to an individual, made up of select compounds that vary depending on age, diet, sex, metabolism and health.
Some diseases result in a characteristic odor emanating from different sources on the body of a sick individual. A person’s smell escapes not just from their skin but their breath, blood and urine and subtle differences reveal just how healthy they are.

Sex-Qualität

Man kann es vielleicht eine deutliche Entwicklung nennen, dass auch jüngere Männer für Frauen längst kein Tabu mehr sind. Jede siebte Frau in Deutschland bevorzugt einen Sexualpartner, der jünger ist als sie selbst. Ältere Frauen sind gelassen: Das mit den Kindern haben sie hinter sich. Das finden viele jüngere Männer attraktiv und anziehend. Sie profitieren von der Lebenslust der Frauen und ihren Erfahrungen.

Humans and animals

There is…documented proof of cannibalism and rape in the animal kingdom, but that doesn’t make it right for humans. While some animals (like the lion) eat their young, neither supporters or opponents of “gay rights” have used this as an argument in favor of infanticide or cannibalism. Thus, a healthy dose of wariness needs to be employed in making scientific claims about homosexual animals justifying homosexual humans.

Wärmetod des Gefühls

Man muß sich fragen, was der heutigen Menschheit größeren Schaden an ihrer Seele zufügt: die verblendende Geldgier oder die zermürbende Hast.
Analyse dieser Motivationen vor, ich halte es aber für sehr wahrscheinlich, daß neben der Gier nach Besitz oder nach höherer Rangordnungs-Stellung, oder nach beidem, auch die Angst
eine sehr wesentliche Rolle spielt, Angst im Wettlauf überholt zu werden.

Avarice and detachment

And just as perfectionism nurtures the anger that sustains it, we may also say here that the prohibition of needs (not simply from their satisfaction but even from their recognition within the psyche) must contribute to the impoverishment of life that underlies the urge to hold on. It may be pointed out that hoarding implies not just avarice, but a projection of avarice into the future – a protection against being left without. Also the avoidance of commitment can be considered as an expression of not giving.

Missbrauch

Missbrauch im Buddhismus

Der Brief beschreibt unmissverständlich und in klaren Bildern physischen, emotionalen, sexuellen, finanziellen und spirituellen Machtmissbrauch. Ziel der Verfasser ist es, Sogyal Rinpoche als auch Rigpa Mitglieder auf das über Jahrzehnte entwickelte und gut verschwiegene machtmissbrauchende Verhalten Sogyal Rinpoches aufmerksam zu machen. Wenn es um den Vorwurf von Missbrauch und Gewalt geht, ist Transparenz und offene Debatte das oberste Gebot.

Egoism versus Altruism

In the humanitarian sciences, the notions of “egoism” and “altruism” are usually treated as the opposites. An altruistic self-sacrifice for the common good is always treated as heroic action and is highly appreciated. The most classical examples are the lives of M. Gandhi, A. Schweitzer, Theresa and some others. Therefore altruism has an untainted reputation while egoism is sometimes considered to be one of the “worst”. As A. Waterman puts it, “the pursuit of self-interest is thought to yield a sense of alienation.

Self-image and biases

A person may have a self-schema based on any aspect of himself, including physical characteristics, personality traits and interests, as long as they important to his self-definition. Once people have developed a schema about themselves, there is a strong tendency for that schema to be maintained by a bias. This is a systematic pattern of deviation from norm or rationality in judgment. Some cognitive biases are a “by-product” of human processing limitations.

Cancer-prone personality

Extremely low anger scores have been noted in numerous studies of patients with cancer. Such low scores suggest suppression, repression, or restraint of anger. There is evidence to show that suppressed anger can be a precursor to the development of cancer, and also a factor in its progression after diagnosis. Notice that their conclusion centers on a certain type of anger that which is not overtly expressed but instead, to use a common expression, is bottled up.
